“Open Class” for Georgian President2009-09-16 16:16
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili adores addressing the youths and speaking about the current political situation. Last Monday he went to Tserovani village to attend the opening of a new school expected to welcome 900 people together with refugees from South Ossetia.
Seizing the occasion the Georgian president couldn't resist accusing Russia that as he said "had lost the battle in Georgia". "The President of Russia - our big neighbor and occupant - devoted half hour of his congratulatory speech for first grade pupils to the talk how evil Georgia is. I am here to say how good we, the children of our country, are, how good our country is, how multinational it is», - Saakashvili said at the school opening ceremony.
But Mr. Saakashvili omitted the reasons why the Georgian kids from South Ossetia have a refugee status in Tserovani village.
And he should have mentioned them because due to the self-assurance of the Georgian president who gave a criminal order on shelling Tskhinval on August 8 2008 the new comers of Tserovani School have to start the new school year in exile. But for the invasion of the Georgian army aimed at forced return of the South Ossetian autonomy to Georgia the status quo could have lasted forever. However the Tbilisi authorities preferred a punitive expedition that ended in a shameful defeat of the Georgian army that had not believed Russia would rise to defend its peacekeepers and civilians in South Ossetia to negotiations and search of compromise with Tskhinval.
But the Georgian president is not going to admit his guilt for what happened. He is packed with a set of rhetorical phrases like those pronounced before school children in Tserovani.
"We are a good and strong nation because many other nations that went through a similar tragedy would have never recovered and risen to their feet", - the Georgian leader declares intoxicated by his own eloquence. - We haven't won this struggle yet, but they have already lost it».
The Georgian president's logic is weird. Russia was not going to occupy Georgia or fight with the brotherly nation. The Russian president had to order the operation to force Georgia to peace only after 90% of Tskhinval had been destroyed by rocket launchers and Russian peacekeepers stationed in South Ossetia under the international agreements had suffered numerous casualties.
After the harsh "political correctness lesson" taught by Russia the Georgian president tamed his bellicose ardor. Now he acknowledges that Georgia can fight only with those who are unable to resist its punitive units.
